Concrete acid staining can make a regular concrete floor look like expensive stone flooring.

With nearly three decades of experience, you can rest assured that we know what we’re doing and that you’ll receive the benefits that only years of expertise can offer. Just look around, get creative, and see what old items you could turn into a treasure many will adore.
Total Basement Finishing ( TBF ), a Basement Systems, Inc. company, offers a highly impact-resistant cement panel backed by rigid foam insulation. It’s strong enough to support anything you’d hang on a conventionally framed wall. Precut channels make wiring easy. And a linen-look vinyl skin in white and beige covers the finished side. Very helpful. Had a water leak and just wanted to make sure I was doing all I should to help it dry properly.
The down side is that carpeting can be disastrous in case of problems with moisture. This is why it is extremely important to get all such issues out of the way before installing carpet in the basement. Satins is another obvious problem with carpeting, and can be difficult to clean and maintain. Peggy I’ve seen that show I love it. She comes up with such good ideas.
